IBasis Inc. said today that it has interconnected with Kyivstar, a mobile operator in Ukraine.
The deal will allow iBasis to expand its international voice services.
Headquartered in Burlington, iBasis is a wholesale carrier of international long-distance calls and a provider of retail prepaid calling services, including Pingo.
The interconnection with iBasis enables Kyivstar to route international voice traffic over the iBasis network and expands iBasis's ability to complete mobile calls to Ukraine, the company said.
"The migration of international voice traffic to mobile networks is one of the major trends in global telecommunications today," iBasis chief executive Ofer Gneezy said in a statement.
